Carte Blanche Concert II

Quartet Connections

As Mozart responded to the quartets of Haydn with his own masterpieces, so did Dvořák challenge the high standard set by Brahms with string quartets of quintessential Bohemian spirit. The Escher String Quartet brings its dual mastery of style and technique to a program juxtaposing several immortal composers, each at the apex of his chamber music achievement. Please join the Escher String Quartet for a picnic lunch following the concert. A gourmet boxed lunch may be reserved with your ticket order for $18.
